downtown dining group anniversary dinner at Wishbone

note:  since so many have signed up for this event, and i need to confirm our reservation tomorrow, please make sure to cancel if you won't be comin.


dear friends--

we will have our July monthly weeknight dinner at Wishbone, 1001 w Washington, phone[masked], with tasty Cajun and Creole cuisine http://www.wishbonech... . . Wishbone was the location of our first after work dinner, 12 years ago in July 2002, and we have met there on each anniversary since.

We will also be celebrating the birthdays of Uncle Dave (July 14), and Rick (July 15)--also July birthdays of newer members, Deb, Carolyn, and Bob D.  if I've left anyone out, let me know--i will add you to the list.

since this dinner will be in the West Loop instead of our usual northwest side locations, it will be easier for people from Indiana to come, and 5-6 Indiana folks did come last year.  This year we will dine in their lovely outdoor garden.  please check the weather, and bring a jacket, sweatshirt, etc, if the evening may be cool.  if our mini-winter continues in earnest, maybe we'll sit inside.

Please let me know if you plan to come. reservation will be under the name of Rick Malkowski, in case you can't find us, or call my cell phone at[masked]-0428.

to make things run more smoothly, I strongly recommend that you have enough cash to pay the bill:  some restaurants don't like splitting up credit card charges.

we try to get separate checks when possible, but if not, just figure what your order costs (don't forget beverages, desserts, and your share of appetizers), add about 1/3 of your total for tax and tip, and contribute it to the pot.  

If you have a coupon you’d like to use at this or any other dinner, please check with me first.  If I have a coupon for the whole group to use, and there is a limit of one per table, the group coupon will take priority.  If not, feel free to use yours.

hope to see you and bon appetit ,

Rick

      thanks for the photos, especially your great eclipse of the sun--i'm moving them to the Central Beach album, where they fit in more

    Are we going to be eating outdoors? If so, a sweater might come in handy based on the forecast.

      That would probably be a good idea

    I've always wanted to come up for a weeknight dinner but was always working late in the southside on my Ph.D. That's now all over and I have a job in the west loop - this is perfect! See you all there!

    I thought I had responded yes to this, but I guess I didn't. Since I'm one of the birthday people, I hope I get off the waiting list. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
